Moses Cone Manor
With abundant natural beauty at the Cone estate, the Guild bridges the landscape with its people in a splendor of craftsmanship.
At the turn of the century, Moses and Bertha Cone built their home, nestled among the mountains with vast views of the Blue Ridge. For over six decades, the Guild and the National Park Service have opened the house to the public each spring. Turned bowls, ceramic tableware, woven garments, and more handmade crafts are displayed throughout the first floor in different rooms. Come enjoy our seasonal craft demonstrations on the front porch while soaking up the views.
Children’s Hours are free, best suited for ages 4 – 12. Activities are hands on simple crafts. An adult or older responsible attendee must stay with children in order for them to participate.
